Was the late great Steve Jobs a sore loser if any other company hired a former employee of Apple. The answer to that is yes…Apparently the great Jobs was set to launch a lawsuit against Palm. After some documents were unearthed, according to these documents Jobs “threatened to file a patent lawsuit against Palm if that company’s chief executive didn’t agree to refrain from poaching Apple employees.”. I mean wouldn’t want employers recruiting my current workers myself. Palm’s CEO said he did not approach or even attempt to hire Apple employees. He also added that he was neither afraid of Apple and Steve Jobs. I dont think anyone is no longer afraid of Apple, just ask Samsung.
